The Parks & Trails Unite Festival will celebrate these amazing resources and the community connections that they provide. This free event will take place on Lake Waubesa at Lake Farm County Park and McDaniel Park, celebrating the new Lower Yahara River Trail which includes a mile-long boardwalk bridge that connects the two parks and provides an off-road trail connection between Madison and McFarland that didn’t previously exist. There will also be water trails and opportunities for kayak, canoe, and boat trips between parks. There will be both free and pay to participate activities, including live music, food carts, educational and cultural displays, live demonstrations, activity stations, pontoon rides, and other activities, too numerous to list.

The funds raised will help build capacity of Dane County volunteers and the sixteen friends groups that support individual county parks. The work that these individuals do for the betterment of Dane County Parks and our communities is essential. 

Find out more about the event on the Dane County Parks website or on Facebook.
